This is a very large re-skin, actually a conversion pack, with both Single Player and Multi Player in mind. I've re-skinned all weapons, animals, and almost all the characters in the entire game. In addition, I've re-skinned some of the GFX files, and added pictures, made a music file that you can download separately. Lots to enjoy. Be sure to see my other read me file (Spawn_Read_Me.rtf) for the npc and playermodel spawn names.

CREDITS: This is where I need to give credit where credit is due. I'm the guy who did all the work on this mod. However....

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Read the MUST_READ_ME file first, and then just put the appropriate files in the base folder.
IMPORTANT WARNING: You should first make sure to remove all other npc / pk3 files before trying this mod.
I've maxed-out the npc limit. It will almost certainly crash if you don't remove your other npc files first (if you have any).
So don't complain if it keeps crashing on you because you didn't read this warning.
DESCRIPTION: This is a very large re-skin, actually a conversion pack, with both Single Player and Multi Player in mind.
I've re-skinned all weapons, animals, and almost all the characters in the entire game.
In addition, I've re-skinned some of the GFX files, and added pictures, made a music file that you can download separately.
Lots to enjoy. Be sure to see my other read me file (Spawn_Read_Me.rtf) for the npc and playermodel spawn names.
BUGS: There's only one bug that I noticed and couldn't figure out how to fix... It's probably something in the .glm file. But I'm on a mac. Oh well...
When Hera (Tavion) gets absorbed by Cronus (Ragnos) for a moment, during the video, Hera's skin turns gray, but when the action starts again she's back to normal.
No big deal, just a little annoying.
COMMENTS: This is the second version of my first and only modification for Jedi Academy.... or any other game..
It started as a simple mod, only wanting to make Hercules and Xena, but then I decided Hercules needs his little buddy, Iolaus,
and Xena needs her buddies, Gabrielle and Joxer, and well, naturally it just kept growing and growing from there.
I started to think it might be possible to redo the entire game but then realized what an enormous task that would be, not to mention impossible on a Mac,
so you and I will have to settle for what I can do.
But hopefully, *someone* with a PC and 3DS Max and/or Radiant will make a Model and / or Map. It would be cool to have some creatures like Echidna, Cerberus,
Kraken, Harpies, etc. As well as a MP or SP map of Ancient Greece, with Mount Olympus, Athens, etc. Maybe someone will take up the challenge?
... Oh, and Xena simply has to have a chakram to throw, right? :)
***Yes, there will be a version number 3! You can expect improved clothing and details in the next version.****
